British Institute of Human Rights Visits Oswestry
We were pleased to partner with Fairness, Respect, Equality Shropshire (FRESh) and the British Institute of Human Rights in partnership with Shropshire Council’s Community Enablement team, to bring the annual Human Rights Tour to Oswestry yesterday.
The event raised awareness about human rights and their relevance in rural life and provided a space for lively debate and discussion.
Jonathan Hyams, FRESh Secretary, said: “This year’s Oswestry event was held at a time when discussion about human rights is probably more important than at any time since 1945.”
Our director and people management specialist, Ian Payne FCIPD, added: “The issue of respect for Human Rights here in the UK and indeed globally, is under greater threat than at any time since many of us can remember. We were delighted to support such a prestigious event in our home town of Oswestry.
“The event fitted neatly with our corporate communications and campaigning work, and specifically my role as a people management specialist advising businesses on how best to promote dignity and respect in the workplace. We were particularly impressed with the high turnout and quality of discussion on the day.”
